Sharing the Vision
Bell was severely treated, and left the school in the spring of 1882. Ellen White wrote a strong letter of support for Bell, and rebuke to others for how they had dealt with him. McLearn also left, and the school closed for the year. Bell went to South Lancaster, Massachusetts, where he opened a new secondary school that same year. After a one-year closure, Battle Creek College reopened, and, with the opening of Healdsburg Academy (also in 1882), the church now operated three secondary schools. In his later years, Bell started the first church correspondence school.
Thought for the Day
Jesus knows the circumstances of every soul. You may say, I am sinful, very sinful. You may be; but the worse you are, the more you need Jesus. - AG 118
